SEAN 'PUFFY' COMBS hasn't got over former flame JENNIFER LOPEZ, according to the rapper's pals.
The hip hop mogul is still pining for the Latino beauty who he broke up with in February (FEB01) and friends admit, he "ain't the guy he used to be".
One pal reveals, "He's sick to death over losing Jennifer. He still loves her and misses her a lot. " Combs is apparently still so upset by the split that he's spending time with his mother JANICE and avoiding his old haunts.
The MISSING YOU hitmaker is even staying away from his palatial, four-storey Park Avenue apartment in New York. The pals explains, "There are too many memories of Jennifer for him in that place. He hasn't built a shrine to her, but he's let things sit the way they were in the last time they were there together. "
And reports that actress-singer Jennifer is to marry her dancer boyfriend CRIS JUDD is expected to devastate Puffy more. The pal adds, "It's going to take time before you see PUFF DADDY struttin' like the old days. " (RP/NE/KMW)
